|Rhapsody to stay: stream Rhapsody audio to any room in the house|

With competitors such as Yahoo and Napster, the market for "all you can eat" digital audio subscription services is increasingly crowded. But Real's Rhapsody service continues to impress. The Rhapsody To Go feature lets you transfer thousands of songs of your choice to your compatible portable player for one flat, monthly price. It's a great upgrade, but music lovers who aren't on the go will still appreciate the classic Rhapsody offerings: access to live audio streams that let you customize your own personalized "radio station." Even better, a growing number of network media devices let you enjoy your Rhapsody subscription when you're away from your PC. Just run the Rhapsody application on your computer, set up one of these boxes anywhere in your house where it can access your home network--wired or wireless--and you're in business. Finally, you can maximize your Rhapsody subscription and enjoy the music wherever you are.
